Rimmel Sunshimmer Instant Tan Medium Matte
New recipe - disappointing
I also have been using Rimmel Sunshimmer for many years and I always loved this product. It was smooth, not too thick and streak free. One of the things that I loved was that it was so easy and quick to apply. It gave an instant tan that was flawless
I have no idea why they have changed the product but it is now of a thicker, drier consistency and very prone to streaking - not easy to apply like before. Perhaps when they changed the packaging they should have left the product alone as this is very disappointing. I am now looking for a new brand of instant tan as a result. Unless Rimmel return to the old fomula of course. If it's not broken don't fix it!

I'm so disappointed
I've used Rimmel fake tan in Medium Matte for about 4 years now. I loved it, perfect natural colour with no smell and it always applied like a dream.
I can't seem to find it in stores now, so instead I've had to buy this. And I'm really upset because it is nothing like the other version. The texture is very thick and gloopy and seems to dry within a matter of seconds which makes blending very difficult. I'm left with streaks across my whole body and a really funny biscuit kind of smell. The tan isn't waterproof either and comes off my skin as soon as it comes into contact with water.
I'm so irritated that Rimmel now have this in place of the older version. It's terrible and I need a new instant tan. Does anybody have any suggestions?

One of the best wash off tans
One of the best wash off tans I have used :-) produces an even brown tan all over, doesn't go patchy unless applied to skin that hasn't been exfoliated/moisturised beforehand. Feels a bit sticky but once left to dry feels just like a light moisturiser :-)
